Another analyst confirms new iPhone to come with 4" 1136x640 pixels screen and 500 nits brightness

Another analyst confirms new iPhone will come with 4" 1136x640 pixels 16:9 screen
KGI analyst Mingchi Kuo, who's had pretty good track record with Apple predictions before, confirmed his supply chain sources reiterated the display on the next iPhone to be 4.08 inches with a resolution of 1,136 x 640 pixels, and a new 16:9 aspect ratio.

"We expect iPhone 5 to feature a 4.08-inch in-cell IPS panel screen with a display resolution of 1,316 x 640 and 500-nit brightness," he says in a research note, indicating that the phone is also expected to be taller.

His analysis why Apple is doing this states that there is user experience to be gained with having a larger display, but 4.3" and above displays seemed the tipping point for Cupertino when phones become unwieldy and requiring "visibly larger" batteries. 

The 4" size design with the above specs won as the perfect tradeoff between comfortable one-hand use, which Apple is very fond of, maximum app compatibility, and battery life, notes the analyst.
